Bright Tops Ups is being removed - why?

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end so from March we're no longer going to be offering pay as you go customers a 1 in 3 chance of winning a prize everytime you top up.

The reason we've done this is because we want to focus on improving other aspects of your pay as you go service with us.

To make sure you know where you stand we'll send you a text 30 days before we turn the lights out on Bright Top Ups, and we'll also text you again to confirm when you've been opted-out. These texts are free.

Fret not however as we have lots of other reasons to be ecstatic with us. Click here for more details - more from Orange, for you. Plus you can still redeem you mobile prizes up until we send you your opt-out message.

What is it?

How does it work?

Bright Top Ups gives you a 1 in 3 chance of winning a prize, every time you top up by at least 5.

You can instantly win mobile rewards.

And even if you haven't won, we'll reward you with a voucher anyway. So there's always something in it for you.

Does it cost anything to take part?

No, entries are free of charge with every top up. All text messages are sent free of charge unless you are overseas when you send them.

Is it the same for every top up?

Every top up counts as a single entry. It doesn't matter what value the top up is and even 5 top ups count as a single entry.
